The U.S. aims at methane for school buses
The first model certified to the California Air Resources Board rolled out
The environmental advantages of methane in transport and its cost-effectiveness increasingly
encourage American schools to use methane-fueled school buses. In the United States, more than 150
school districts operate about 5,500 CNG buses. However, the fleet could increase even further as
now also the California Air Resources Board has certified the first high-volume production engine
for these vehicles, based on the Ford’s 6.8L V10 engine.
The motor will be installed on the vehicles of Blue Bird Corporation, the company specializing in manufacturing of school buses, according to which the developed technology will “ reduce the emissions from vehicles by up to 90%.”
